Most importantly, it has been proved that silk prevents aging! Silk contains a natural protein and 18 essential amino acids so it can counter the effects of aging, especially in the facial skin and can help calm the nervous system and speed up metabolism of skin cells, thus helping to reduce signs of aging.
Silk is a natural heat regulator, maintaining the correct body temperature. It does not conduct heat or static electricity like other fibers. Heat is retained during cold temperatures and redundant heat is shed during warm temperatures, keeping your skin cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
As an ultra smooth fabric, silk pillowcases won’t bind or catch hair the way man-made fabrics can. Hair glides on silk rather than rubs. This benefit is enhanced when the silk is pure long strand mulberry silk (cultivated rather than wild) and it is a traditional charmeuse (satin) weave, which gives a depth and even greater softness and smoothness.

Although silk pillowcases may be a little pricy, but your hair and skin will thank for them.
